Tinder is coming to your home theater. The online dating company has launched an Apple TV app so you can swipe prospects on the big screen.
“Tinder on Apple TV is our latest innovation in quality fun,” the company says. “Invite friends and family, set the playlist to shuffle and put out the chips and dip. Bringing people together is what we do, and we’re even more excited to be able to combine all the joys of swiping with all the comforts of home.”
To swipe on your television, go to the Apple TV app store, download the free app, log in, and start swiping.
Tinder this month also announced the launch of Swipe Ventures, which will seek to expand the app’s footprint through acquisitions and investments in new and existing businesses within the dating and social space.
Swipe Ventures will be led by Sean Rad, Tinder’s cofounder and CEO. As a result he will step down from his role as CEO of Tinder. Rad will take over as chairman of Tinder, while current chairman Greg Blatt will become CEO of Tinder. Blatt is also CEO of Match, which owns Tinder.
Launched in 2012, Tinder is used in nearly 200 countries and has more than 1.6 million paying subscribers. Each day, 26 million matches are made on Tinder with more than 20 billion matches made to date.
